We have been fans of Blu Kouzina since its beginning in Bukit Timah. The second incarnation at Dempsey was the peak. Everything at this new location, next door to the last one, is in every way a step down,except for the price!! The place is more cramped and more downmarket. The food is haphazard. Some dishes remain excellent, others not so. For instance, the lamb chops, while flavourful, are quite tough. Service staff are friendly, but a bit blurred and overzealous, keen to clear up the plates although we haven’t finished the expensive dishes. At S$140 per pax at lunch, we thought it was poor value. For Mediterranean food, Pistachio at Wheelock Place is better AND better value. For us, Blu has moved from green light to red

Prices are reasonable and service is good, but the food is extremely average - not fine dining by any means. The Beyond Burger may be eco-friendly, but it’s not juicy (not Privé’s fault) and the bun is below-average quality. Other dishes (rib eye steak, cauliflower steak) don’t look too appetising; only the salmon appears ok.

Our group was the only guests for dinner at this restaurant, so it was alright as a de facto private party. There is a reason why there was no other patron there: the ambience is quite cold; the food is not bad but extremely average, and while prices are not exorbitant, it is not good value. Although the official closing time is 10:30 pm, for some reason, they wanted us out by 9 pm. I would not go back here.

This place caters mainly to the moneyed office crowd in the CBD (bankers, lawyers, traders). Great view of MBS helps attract afterwork groups, not too sensitive to food quality. Because although the food is good, it’s nothing memorable or innovative, and terribly overpriced. That may be why they have all kinds of 1-for-1 offers, for drinks as well as food. The service staff are friendly, but among the most laid back there is: Phone calls are rarely answered. We were there for lunch on a weekend, and although there were only four tables of 2 customers inside (and two tables outdoors), refills never happened.

Farting is healthy (the wet type, less so)
